SUPER MOSH’SH PIT: arrive and get in your spot in line 20 minutes before opening time
Entry number (on ticket) from M1 to M1000 ⇒ 10 minutes after the opening time
Entry number (on ticket) from M1001 or later ⇒ 20 minutes after the opening time
- You will be waiting outside, so be prepared for rain. With that said, you cannot bring an umbrella inside. I have seen in other shows, people leave them and you can pick them up (from the floor) after exiting.
- They will have a [HAPPY MOSH’SH PIT] and [Woman’s only area] in the MOSH’SH PIT. The [HAPPY MOSH’SH PIT] is an area for people who do not wish to mosh. Note that both these areas tend to be at the far back.
For both MOSH’SH SEAT (reserved seat) and MOSH’SH SEAT (reserved seat behind the stand): there is no entry order, arrive whenever you want after doors open.
Located at the Shiromi Hall on the east exit (see map)

Note that there are lockers all around the venue and station, but they tend to fill up quite early.
